Last Saturday, I attended my first women’s breakfast. Normally, Saturday mornings are about Charlie’s football training and dealing with whatever life has thrown at us that week. This time I thought I would really like to go, especially as St Mary’s and St John’s were hosting, so I went along as a willing volunteer.
I was asked to help Zoe with serving tea and coffee on the day. Everyone was happy to do what they could to make the morning go well. Our lovely team had thought of everything! St Mary’s looked amazing and so welcoming. The attention to detail was impressive, from the delicious food and drinks that were served, the pretty table decorations, to the leaving gifts given to guests as they left afterwards.
The theme that morning was fostering and adoption, and the part that God’s father heart plays in helping parents choose these paths, and the strength He gives to guide them through the tough times as well as the good. The three speakers included our very own Rachel Maclure and Rachel Burnell, and Sarah, a Home for Good champion who attends Maswell Park.
They all spoke so eloquently and from the heart about their experiences. I found it very interesting and at times very moving. Also, we were lucky enough to have Rebecca with us, she had come from Clapham Junction, to bless us and played the guitar beautifully.
I really enjoyed being part of a fantastic team of women that morning. Everyone was so friendly and I had great fun working alongside Zoe, getting to know the other women more and bumping into friends from other churches in the area who had come along. Ladies, I highly recommend going along to a Women’s Breakfast if you can. You will receive a very warm welcome, enjoy a delicious breakfast with friends while listening to talks from inspirational women. Such a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning.
